Creative Persons (Series) (1968)

The production of Creative Persons, a series of twelve, half-hour film portraits, was supported cooperatively by the CBC, the BBC, National Educational Television in the U.S.A., and Bayerischer Rundfunk in West Germany. The filmmakers employed direct cinema techniques to examine a number of people who make contemporary art of different types. The subjects, in programs that were individually titled, "Who Is...?" with the name of the principal filling the blank, included novelist James Jones, composer Pierre Boulez, Maurice Bejart, sculptor Jacques Lipschitz, architect Walter Gropius, and artist Rufino Tamayo, designer Sean Kenny, Oscar Niemeyer, playwright Max Frisch, painter Richard Smith, musician Sonny Rollins, artist Victor Vasarely and writer Norman Mailer.
